Hans Werner Henze and Karlheinz Stockausen are two central figures of 20th century German music and their compositions bookend this evening’s music programme. However, the focus will be on the eminent German clarinettist and contemporary composer – Jörg Widmann, who performed with the PKF – Prague Philharmonia as a soloist clarinettist at a concert during the Prague Spring International Music Festival 2021. Today’s concert presents Jörg Widmann as Germany’s leading contemporary composer whose works are brought out by erudite publishers and performed by soloists and ensembles across the world.
